The Drowned Woman/Contrary Wife: interpretations of an ancient feminist allegory.
A Christian Martyr Drowned in the Tiber During the Reign of Diocletian (1855), by French painter Paul Delaroche (1797 - 1856), at the end of his life after the death of his beloved wife.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Young_Martyr

"It's nothing, just a woman drowning"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_drowned_woman_and_her_husband

A version from 1450: "A man, whose wife had drowned in a stream, went up the river against the current to look for the body. A peasant who saw him marvelled greatly at this, and advised him to follow the flow of the current. 'In that case', returned the first, 'I should never find her, for when she was alive she was always difficult and contrary and went against the ways of others, so I am sure now that she is dead, she will go against the current of the stream.'"

"an English retelling in the early Tudor Merry Tales and Quick Answers (c.1530)":
From "The Hundred Merry Tales: or Shakspeare's jest book"

Of hym that sought his wyfe against the streme. lv.

A man the hose wyfe, as she came ouer a bridg fell in to the ryuer and was drowned: wherfore he wente and sought for her vpward against the stream, wherat his neighboures, that went with hym, maruayled, and sayde he dyd nought, he shulde go seke her downewarde with the streame. Naye quod he, I am sure I shall neuer funde her that waye: For she was so waywarde and so contrary to euery thynge, whyle she lyuedde, that I knowe very well nowe she is deed, she wyll go a gaynste the streame.

Spooky!

High Sparrow From Game Of Thrones Looks Exactly Like Pope Francis.
Have you ever seen High Sparrow and Pope Francis in the same room? Neither do we! This is because they're probably the same person. And if this looks strange to you, wait till you see these animals that totally look like celebrities.

Quiet true about converting Russians to right wingers. :/
 
The American and European press tends to portray Israeli politics in fairly simplistic, one-sided ways: it's either composed entirely of heroes or of villains. Reality, as you may guess, is quite a bit more complicated. The past few years have been more complicated still, as a right-wing coalition forged by Netanyahu has gradually shifted towards fascism, and he has worked steadily to weaken his most powerful and determined enemy: the military.

This is one of those ways in which Israeli politics are very different from other countries': the Israeli military is universally respected across society, and it has also systematically been one of the clearest voices for restraint, diplomacy, and peace. Netanyahu, on the other hand, forged a coalition out of the ultra-Orthodox, ultranationalists, settlers, and the clever manipulation of Russian immigrants – groups either new to the country or historically at the sidelines of politics. (The largest ultra-Orthodox party, for example, spent years with their primary focus being on corruption. For it, not against it, in case that isn't clear)

Fascinatingly, he has done this despite being widely hated and mistrusted. Much of his power came not from his own personal success, but through a combination of luck and planning keeping everyone else in chaos.

This article goes through the history of the political manoeuvers which allowed Netanyahu to achieve this unprecedented level of power. It doesn't explain nearly everything; there are many dimensions beyond this, including the collapse of the left wing following the failed Camp David talks in 2000, the vacuum created by Ariel Sharon's unexpected stroke in 2006, or the long-term effects of the project to convert second-generation Russian immigrants to the far right. (First-generation immigrants were offered inexpensive housing in settlements; existing (ultranationalist) settlers got to define how things like education worked in those areas.)

Nor, alas, does it explain why Netanyahu is such an asshole. But this appears to be our fate: Some men are born assholes; some achieve assholery; yet we all seem to have assholes thrust upon us.

(Article via medium.com/@TheSunday)
Israel’s prime minister is fighting hard to weaken the most important moderate force in his country. Which is why he’s going to be a big problem for the next U.S. president.

Sadly ironic!
 
More data about the expense of poverty.

" When Orhun and Palazzolo compared households with similar consumption rates shopping at comparable stores — and controlling for two-ply TP — they found that the poor were less likely than wealthier households to buy bigger packages, or to time their purchases to take advantage of sales. By failing to do so, they paid about 5.9 percent more per sheet of toilet paper — a little less than what they saved by buying cheaper brands in the first place (8.8 percent).

Perhaps this sounds like a subtle discovery about minor household goods. But it supports a larger point about poverty: It's expensive to be poor. Or, to state the same from another angle: Having more money gives people the luxury of paying less for things. "
The world is full of opportunities to save money — if you just have enough money to access them.

I love this dentistry place! Dr. Joey and his staff are incredible and have done a terrific job making my daughter feel great during her visits to the dentist. They sing the ABCs when they clean her teeth, give her awards, etc and more importantly they keep her teeth in check and clean! Highly recommend it.
